The whale shark (Rhincodon typus), locally known as “butanding,” is the largest fish in the world. The largest confirmed individual had a length of 12.65 m (41.5 ft) and a weight of about 21.5 t (47,000 lb). The species originated about 60 million years ago.

The whale shark is found in open waters of the tropical oceans and is rarely found in water below 22 °C (72 °F). In Cebu, it can be seen in a small barangay Tan-awan, which is 10 km away from the center town of Oslob.


Our whale shark expedition routes via Panglao Island, Bohol which is cheaper and faster than taking a ferry trip from Tagbilaran City to Cebu City.
